Gans, Connie; And Others
This text is the second in a series of advanced career education materials which, with an elementary segment, form a career education curriculum for elementary-secondary migrant students. Complementing texts on careers and roles and on work exploration and work experience, the text uses activities, poems, and cartoons to focus on self-awareness and decision making. The text begins with exercises that lead high school students toward self-awareness and values clarification. Next, the book focuses on four work readiness skills (appropriate dress, promptness and reliability, helpfulness, and job performance) and on completing forms for job applications, work permits, and social security cards. The text also discusses readily available job information resources, explains 15 career clusters, and discusses writing letters of inquiry for job information. Next, the book contains exercises designed to help students organize and present facts about themselves, using fact sheets, job applications, resumes, skills checklists, and letters of application. The text covers learning about the working world through the use of help wanted and position wanted ads, telephone calls, and apprenticeships, and discusses job interview techniques such as being positive, answering questions, being prepared, and practicing. A section on career advancement and job changes concludes the text. (SB)
